Relax Kids: The Magic Box
A book full of magical meditations to enhance your child's mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
The Magic Box is full of creative visualisations, meditations and relaxations. Children can imagine they are on a tropical island, flying into space, in a hot air balloon, time travelling and leaving their worries on the worry tree.
The book combines fantasy story meditations with deep relaxations, simple mindfulness exercises and positive affirmations. It is a great way to introduce meditation and mindfulness to young children.
The Magic Box is a highly imaginative and captivating book that holds children's attention while allowing them to relax. It is an invaluable bedtime and classroom tool. Each relaxation lasts around 5-8 minutes and is perfect to bring rest and calm to the room. The relaxations have been designed to help children relax and destress.
This book is designed to engage children while introducing them to relaxation and simple stress-management techniques. Relaxation strategies such as progressive muscle relaxation and visual imagery have been shown to be extremely effective treatment components for reducing stress and anxiety in children.
These story meditations are a wonderful way for children to explore learning and mindfulness. Children love to tell stories, role-play stories and teach others what they learn from stories. Research supports that mindful meditation calms the brain, inspires creativity and enhances cognitive and social-emotional skills.
Practiced regularly, these exercises can have a profound effect on children’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
This book can be used in the classroom to bring quiet and calm before lessons, during assemblies, PSHE classes, after PE and during wet play time.
The Relax Kids series is currently available in Europe and now available in North America. CD available at www.relaxkids.com
